Hi Jazzhound, We usually recommend to leave that area 1 hour in advance. The cost from there (round trip) usually costs about $80 to $85 (not charged per person, but the trip). Bookings are required to visit.

It would be really unusual to see one in a cage during the tours. Some live here but they are not in captivity , so they can be anywhere. Sometimes we see them, some other times we cannot find them.
